Pump Lane Graveyard – Society of Friends (Quakers) 1812 – 1822

The 1823-1833 burials

The following are extracts from the burial records for the Limerick Society of Friends, covering those buried in Pump Lane Graveyard which was once situated at the end of Pump Lane in English Town. You can read the original registers for this graveyard at Society of Friends Burial Papers. Following the death of Rebecca Mark Harvey on Christmas Day 1831, Joseph Massey Harvey her husband donated a portion of his land in Ballinacurra as a burial ground for the Society of Friends. Rebecca was the first to be interred there on the 8th of July 1833, this would become the main graveyard for the Society of Friends from 1834 onwards.

Pump Lane is now known as St. Francis Place and the graveyard is located under St. Mary’s Girls Primary School.
